Language lab is a system that transforms a passive language class into an active speaking-based learning environment. This helps the language teacher to save a substantial amount of time and manage their language classes more efficiently. For students this means that they can spend more time on speaking-based language learning activities and actually using the target language.
The language lab concept has been the most prominent application to use educational technology to enhance English and foreign language teaching and learning methods in our formal education sector. Technology-enhanced teaching environment tends to be more effective than a traditional text-book or lecture based class - especially when teaching languages.
